    Default To hell with it!

    Dim Bulb Tester.
    Test any component before plugging it into a wall socket.
    It will tell you QUICK if there is a problem with the component before sending damaging current to the transformer.
    Super cheap insurance, and down right mandatory for vintage equipment.

    Lower 48 states only.

    Pick a number between 1 and 150 and the closest (above or below wins).

    I will have another member draw the number.

    In the event of a tie, closest number the tie breaking number wins.

    I will explain how it works when you win it!

    All members are welcome.

    I'll pay shipping.

    I sea that someone...a very zitful person, stole my hot number so I will be forced to take number 74, and thank you very much. Now the primary purpose for this is to test for dim bulbs? In a pinch could it be used to test for a DIM WITT?

    Nice karma, bub ;-)
    I am not in but this is an excellent acquisition for a "vintage hardware" buff (especially one starting out); a "poor man's Variac".
    Here are a coupla primers on the design use of such a gizmo.

    http://antiqueradio.org/dimbulb.htm
    http://www.ppinyot.com/dimbulb/dim_bulb_tester.htm

    Note that a small array of bulbs of different wattages (i.e., of different filament reistances) will allow one to use the dim-bulb tester as a "poor man's Variac" to not only limit current but bring the device under test up to full line voltage step by step rather than slamming those decades-old filter capacitors with 120VAC at turn on :-)

    N.B. Stock up on incandescent bulbs while you can!

    Pepster, hope you don't mind the thread-jack!
    all the best,
    mrh

    Not at all Mark, your the reason I built my first one!
    You explain it better than I ever could, and thanks for all the info you have taken time to give me recently.
    Much appreciated!
